“The Secret of Roan Inish”
1993 PG 102 minutes
When 10-year-old Fiona (Jeni Courtney) learns how her ancestors came to leave the island of the seals, Roan Inish, she discovers there may be magic afoot in her family tree, in writer-director John Sayles' (Limbo, Lone Star) fable for all ages.
This Celtic fairy tale -- about folkloric, aquatic creatures that are half human and half seal -- includes breathtaking images of Ireland's coastline.
